This is a study of alcohol and drug use in your community conducted by Massey University. The aim is to better understand recent drug trends and to improve health services. Everything you write is confidential. Your data will not be shared with anyone. Your name and contact details will not be required.

Some of the questions will be about your alcohol and drug use, the availability and price of those substances in your area, and any health services you have accessed in relation to your substance use. It will take around 8–10 minutes.

Participation is voluntary. You can choose not to answer any question.

You must be 16 years or older to participate.

The results of the survey will be posted on our Facebook page: New Zealand Drug Trends
